Congress Urged to Delay New Medicare Wheelchair Rental Policy
Date:11/9/2010

Congress to delay implementation of the new policy.  Congress has received letters from groups such as the United Spinal Association, American Association of People with Disabilities, National Council on Independent Living, National Spinal Cord Injury Association and the Association of Programs for Rural Independent Living.  

"This is an example of the wrong policy, at the wrong time," said Tyler Wilson, president of the American Association for Homecare. "Americans have strongly indicated that they want smart public policy that creates jobs and helps families and communities. Elimination of the first-month purchase option does just the opposite. It will cost jobs in communities, while depriving vulnerable Medicare patients of the mobility assistance they need.   We urge Congress to delay implementation of this policy."

Mobility Matters is published periodically by the American Association for Homecare (AAHomecare) to inform Congress, the administration, policymakers, consumer organizations and the media about Medicare's power mobility benefit, and the need to sustain it. AAHomecare is committed to helping seniors and people living with disabilities regain their freedom and independence. To learn more about the Medicare power mobility benefit, go to www.aahomecare.org/mobility.
